    I worked at Cargill full-time

    Pros

    Awesome management that seriously cares about their effects on the world. It was nice to see this as a young man in the meetings. Got sort of tired of people telling me it was some "evil corporation" when all I saw was honest, hardworking people. Things that happened in the field were taken very seriously as well.
    Interns were treated like kings.

    Cons

    SLOOOWWWWWWW moving on any sort of action. Frustrating.

    I worked at Cargill full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I spent 37 years at Cargill and have great things to say about this company. The salary, benefits, 401k were comparable to the marketplace. I had the opportunity to live in places from Louisville, KY to Modesto, CA to San Antonio, TX. Unfortunately, in the latest company transition, my position was eliminated and the work moved overseas. Otherwise, my plan was to retire with Cargill.

    Cons

    With a combination of transitions being done simultaneously (Financial, HR, IT, etc.) and many strong employees leaving the company due to these transitions, there was confusion concerning the optimal path to accomplish daily duties.
